There is a paucity of data on the occurrence of fibromyalgia (FM) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The objective of this study was to determine the frequency of fibromyalgia in a group of patients with COPD in Mosul, as well as characterization of the features of COPD patients with concomitant FM. Participants included seventy COPD-patients plus se-venty controls. The “2011 modification of the 2010 American College of Rheumatology’s preliminary diagnostic criteria for fibromyalgia” was employed to make the diagnosis of FM. The demographic features and COPD data of the patients were documented. Pulmonary function tests and Chest-X-ray were evaluated for all patients. FM was present in 16 (22.9%) of 70 COPD patients, and only in 4 (5.7%) of the 70 controls, and the difference was significant. FM was found in 58.33% of female COPD patients compared to 15.52% of male COPD patients (p=0.004). There was no statistically significant difference in COPD patients with and without FM in respect to their age or BMI. However, patients with FM tended to have a longer duration of COPD (8.06±2.69 vs. 4.78±2.13, P value < 0.001), and higher scores on the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) (20.7±9.200 vs. 14.8±7.900, P value=0.0139), and greater COPD severity (P< 0.001). The frequency of FM in patients with COPD was higher than control. FM is more likely to occur in female patients. Patients with comorbid FM and COPD tended to report more depressive symptoms, have longer disease duration, and higher disease severity.
